Joe Patitucci is a multimedia healing artist working to foster connection to intuitive states and the natural world. A central part of his work is the design of harmonious environments that provide space for guests to explore, discover and connect to subtle realms of reality. Those engaging in Joe’s work are seen as participants in a ritual of self-discovery. Through media generated by bio-responsive systems and through dialogue, he invites participants to broaden their experience of mental, physical and digital space as well as community.
As Founder and Director at Data Garden, Patitucci produces public art and oversees the production of the MIDI Sprout, a device that allows users to monitor unseen activities of living organisms through digital art. Through Nature of Now, Patitucci combines his artistic practice with his training in Deep Listening, sound healing and pranayama to lead groups in guided meditations and breathwork workshops scored by sonified plants. In September, 2016, Patitucci launched Plants.fm, an online streaming service delivering live music generated by plants.
Joe co-curates Data Garden’s record label and co-curated The Switched-On Garden at Bartram's Garden in Philadelphia in 2011 and 2012. He has exhibited work at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Center For PostNatural History at Carnegie Mellon University, The Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY, The University of Boulder Environmental Center, The Noguchi Museum in Long Island City, New York, and SXSW Interactive in Austin, Texas, among others.
